South Bank, London –
Ministry of Sound is a world-renowned superclub, the backbone of London’s clubbing scene, and heaven on earth for lovers of trance music.
Divided into five separate rooms, four bars, two VIP lounges, and four DJ booths and dance floors, Ministry exudes a raw energy that draws a diverse clientele of music lovers, hipsters, and young professionals who flock in to drink and dance the night away.
Known for its state-of-the-art technology, Ministry has equipped each room with slide and video projections, plasma screens, LED lighting, and a behemoth of a sound system.
Hardcore fans who want nothing less than to climb inside the music should head straight to The Box, which is separated from the rest of the rooms by a soundproof entrance and houses the meanest sound system in the club.
Disco balls, glittering chandeliers, aerial walkways, and colorful lighting displays round out the multisensory experience that patrons have come to expect from Ministry.
Diverse, but attracts a lot of club and trance music enthusiasts, mostly 20s.
Resident and well-known guest DJs play techno, house, soul, drum and bass, and garage.
Concession stands serving hot dogs and snacks can be found in the outdoor courtyard.
Cover charge £13–£15/F–Sa if paid in advance, up to £5–£6 more at the door; drops to £6 around 3–4am. Drinks £5+. Food concessions £3–£4.
Casual to smart casual. Dress code: no suits or tracksuits, but jeans, sneakers, and t-shirts are fine.
Friday and Saturday nights. There is no avoiding the line, so patrons can arrive whenever they want.
